Summary
The primary focus of this title is the controversial ending of Vergil's Aeneid, one of the most influential poems in the Western tradition. 'The Humanness of Heroes' begins by examining Aeneas' savage looting in the tenth part of this epic book, followed by tracing the sources and manifestations of the emotions of the hero. The book ends with a detailed study of the end of the poem. In the epilogue, the author gives an overview of the relationship between the denouement of Virgil and aspects of Stowe's 'Uncle Tom's Cabin' and Twain's 'Huckleberry Finn'. The book reinforces the position of Virgil as one of the most original poets of our literary canon, with a profound influence on the literature of our world, from Dante to Derek Walcott and Seamus Heaney.
